. we will take it down another 0.15%. we are north of the 13th largest economy in the world in texas, so you have to remain competitive. if you want people to invest more, if you allow people to keep more of their money, we know as conservatives they will either suspended or save it and invest, which is good for the economy. we overhauled our worker compensation system. we have some of the highest rates in the nation as well as in the region. we revamped our system, moving from an antiquated system, moving to a new system that will essentially save employers, people who create jobs, 15% to 20% on their premiums every year. people always say, stop talking about social problems. i think that is nonsense. you take every social issue known to man, whether it is high incarceration rates, drug and substance abuse issues -- i think they can all be traced to one key ingredient, and that is the breakdown of the family unit. this year in oklahoma we said we would do things to promote the family, going on a campaign to express why strong families are not just good for society, they are good for

're going to have a lot of women, hopefully, if all goes well, the great state senator wendy davis of texas will think about running for governor of texas. but if we want to see a woman in the white house, which we do, we also need to see and support women running in governorships. these are executive leader positions and in the united states, 24 states have not ever in their history elected a woman governor. they're not alone. we have to do this, this is another piece of the puzzle. as the senator says, once you see it, you get it. it's not an issue anymore. but we've got to keep pushing state-by-state. once we break that biggest and final glass ceiling towards the white house, it's going to open up so many doors across the country, governor's mayor -- governors' races, mayors' races, others. >> senator mccaskill, is she why you ran? >> i think that a simple way of putting it, i think both my mother and father gave me permission to be bossy and opinionated. my dad reassured me that even though no one wanted to date me in college, it would get better. i can't even believe that's true. >> bo

do we -- i know texas opted out of it. how could we opt out of its? and they were there. >> let me give you of the background. first of all, it does not emanate from anything the senate has done. common gore is a program developed by the governors' association. so if you don't want them coming to be a part of a commodity have to do is change it. it's not anything that goes through me. in other words, it's a state up to then opt out deal. that is a state-run a shoot they you all need to deal with. i don't think the goals behind a common core are necessarily bad. i think probably the implementation is very dangerous, but the point is improving the educational standards of our children, you know, the best way to do that is put parents, teachers, administrators back in charge.
